6-year-old boy finds rare blue-eyed cicada

It was a one-in-a-million find. Literally. Most of the 17-year cicadas that have emerged in recent weeks in parts of the Midwest have red eyes. But a 6-year-old boy in this Chicago suburb found a rare blue-eyed one in his backyard Friday.

Nicholas Wagner's mother, Maria, said her son learned about the blue-eyed bugs in kindergarten, so he decided to go out and hunt for one himself. The blue eyes are caused by a genetic variation.
